Posted Saturday March 29, 2014, About: Nolan Ryan details falling out with Rangers
The Rangers won their division in 96, 98 and 99.

Uhhh. No he wasn't. Tom Seaver, Jim Palmer, Steve Carlton, Bob Gibson were not only better but better by a mile. In fact Ryan was never even the best pitcher in a given year as evidenced by zero Cy Youngs.

Wait, wasn't Nolan Ryan the guru of keeping pitchers healthy?
Posted Friday March 21, 2014, About: Rick Pitino irked by tournament selection
Of course the NCAA arranged the matchup deliberately. That said, I agree with an earlier poster, who cares. It did add an interesting story line.

No issue with your comment. However, he does have a right to be pissed at a 4 seeding. No team ranked 3 and 5 in the country at season's end has ever been as low as a 4 seed. Actually, it's absurd.
Posted Tuesday March 18, 2014, About: Report: Phillies strongly considering trading Jimmy Rollins
Rollins turns 36 in 2014, already past the expiration date for shortstops. As a one year fix, perhaps. I doubt they Yankees want a 1 year fix.

A 4.19 lifetime era pitcher from the AL West wants to come to the AL East, Camden Yards at that, and sign a one year deal to improve his stock. He's a fool.
Posted Tuesday March 11, 2014, About: Machado disappointed in new deal
Tough to disagree with you on Trout. Yes, better than Harper.

Best young player in the game.
Posted Saturday March 08, 2014, About: Albert Pujols: Mike Trout isn't in my league yet
Lost in all this, Pujol's contract in almost all certainty will end up being as bad or worse than A-Rod's. The smartest or perhaps luckiest team in baseball are the Cardinals because this tool who claimed it wasn't about the money took the money.

Two other points Albert.

No, your numbers are not in Barry Bond's league. A .410 OBP and 165 OPS+ are not .444 and 182. Bonds was a 8 time gold glover at a skill position not a two time gold glover at first base.

And PED rumors have followed you for years, and your numbers have declined and you body broken down at age 31. Me thinks they are more than rumors.

There are a lot of ways this question could have been handled with class. No surprise this tool chose this way.
Posted Friday March 07, 2014, About: Tanaka fooled no one
"just better than average" for $155 million dollars at 7 years? I highly doubt Yankee management is looking at this as you describe. That said The Yankees have had great success signing unproven Japanese pitchers in the past, so no worries here.
Posted Thursday March 06, 2014, About: Masterson wants $40-60M
Lifetime 53-63 record, 4 era, 1.00 era+, 1.35 whip, wants $60 mio. Kids these days.
Posted Wednesday March 05, 2014, About: Why Trout should turn down $150M
Yup. Everything's A-Rod's fault. Including the bad winter we've had in the northeast.
Posted Wednesday March 05, 2014, About: Why Trout should turn down $150M
Now that's good advice.
Posted Wednesday March 05, 2014, About: Why Trout should turn down $150M
That could be the dumbest advice I've heard. Ask Juan Gonzalez how turning down $150 million turned out for him.
Posted Monday March 03, 2014, About: Pujols irked by Trout rivalry question
No doubt there. Best run organization in baseball.
Posted Monday March 03, 2014, About: Pujols irked by Trout rivalry question
Good chance, though the better question is would he have hit 700 if he didn't play at miserable Candlestick. No doubt in that case.
Posted Monday March 03, 2014, About: Pujols irked by Trout rivalry question
Thanks for the history lesson. The Angels are paying for performance now. The past is, wait a second, the past. And you ignored there is a defensive side to the game, where of course there nor ever has been a comparison.
Posted Monday March 03, 2014, About: Pujols irked by Trout rivalry question
Not sure what you mean here, however, by all accounts the Cardinals offered Pujols $210-220 for 10 years, the Angels $254 for 10. Pujols went for the money as was his right to choose. Both offers were foolish in my opinion and I said so at the time. In the Cardinals case, there was a "loyalty" factor that influenced their offer I am sure. Either way, the Cardinals are thrilled now.
